Subject Re: javac and dependent classes
Date Sun, 20 Jun 2004 15:58:04 GMT

Javac will handle most simple dependency checks. It will compile things 
in the correct order and handle building all your classes. The problem 
arises when you change the interface of one class, but do not recompile 
all the classes. Here, you need to determine dependencies in order to 
protect against runtime exceptions and errors. If you are talking about 
this case, it sounds like Javamake or depend will work for you. 
Otherwise, if you are just talking about compile order, javac will 
handle all that for you.
